Jonas Vingegaard targets the Tour-Vuelta double

Jumbo-Visma will bring best squad at the Vuelta a Espana in the autumn and will not only count on Primoz Roglic, but also on Jonas Vingegaard. 

Vingegaard confirmed that he will participate in the Vuelta. In other words, Jumbo-Visma will not start with one, but with two leaders in the Spanish grand tour. With Primoz Roglic, the team can count on a rider who has already been the best in the Vuelta a España three times (in 2019, 2020 and 2021). The Slovenian already won the Giro d’Italia earlier this year and is preparing meticulously for the Vuelta.

With Vingegaard, Jumbo-Visma now also has a second option. The Dane, who won the Tour de France for the second time, rode the Vuelta a Espana once before. In the 2020 ‘corona edition’ he was very important in the service of leader and later final winner Roglic.

Roglic and Vingegaard will have to compete in the upcoming Vuelta against, among others, world champion and defending champion Remco Evenepoel, Geraint Thomas (runner-up in the Giro), Aleksandr Vlasov and Joao Almeida. Richard Carapaz and Enric Mas, two riders who had to abandon early in the Tour de France, also should be there in August.
